But I actually found the Bobbi Brown (BB) No Smudge Mascara! Yes!!! I absolutely love it! It's great!
I took before and after pictures and here they are!
Coach Chelsea Tattersall Multi Stripe Tote a.k.a. Chelsea!
Jackie and I went to the Philadelphia Premium outlets last week and I got this pretty little thing.
I was in luck becase there were no more of these but someone decided to bring her back... yay for me!
I'll give her a better home anyways!
Here is Chelsea:
Work is going ok. I have learned a lot and have yet to learn many many many more things... being a nurse is hard work! No lie. 12 hour shifts suck too! Especially when the weather is gorgeous outside and you are stuck inside during the whole.entire.day.!!! So bad! But I finally got a 8 hr shift yesterday and was so happy to just feel the sun shining on me and the wind coming in my open car windows!
I absolutely LOVE spring!!!! It is my very favorite season of the year... next up is summer. Warm weather and me make a perfect couple! haha.
But other than work I have been doing NCLEX questions up the waazzooooo!
I need to pass this exam. It is going to be the most important exam I have ever taken in my whole life for crying out loud! It decides my future and how I am going to survive for the next 3 months without being able to work as a nurse if I happen to not pass this exam.
It will go one of two ways:
1) I pass the NCLEX-RN exam and I am officially a Registered Nurse in my state. I will be able to pay my bills without too much worry. I will be able to save even more money for a vacation that I am planning for this summer (which by the way I am going even if I don't pass the first time!!!). I will not have to go back to my measly $12/hr position for 3 months until I can take this exam again. I WILL BE AN RN!!! Whoo!!!
2) I don't pass the NCLEX-RN exam and I go back to being a technical partner, even though I have a BSN. I will be worried about my bills because I won't be able to save enough. My vacation might be cut shorter than I would hope it would be. I will have to take this exam ... yet again. I will look like a failure to my floor and supervisors... even though plenty of nurses who work there NOW have taken the boards at least twice and they are wonderful and smart and great nurses.
Yeah. I'm hoping scenario #1 will occur for me!!! I am sending happy and good thoughts to the universe so it sends me good karma right back to me! I need this more than I have ever needed anything in my life. I want to not worry about this exam anymore. I wish I would have taken it already so I wouldn't have to worry about it anymore. But I don't think I would have felt ready. I feel 75% ready for this exam right now. Over this 5 day break from work I have, I am studying my
I just hope that I do pass. I will deal with scenario #2 when, and if, it happens. I have gone through worse things in my life and I have survived. So this is a piece of cake.... sort of. haha
Wish me and everyone else luck [and send happy thoughts] that has to take this very important exam that will make them become Registered Nurses!
Thanks for all the good thoughts in advance!!! Even if you don't think they help, they really do! I appreciate all the positivity I can take!
Have a wonderful Friday lovelies!
But of course the day I am planning on going shopping with Jackie on Saturday what is it going to be like???
Well see for yourself:
Mar 09 Mostly Clear 35° 10 %
Mar 10 PM Showers 57°/38° 30 %
Mar 11 AM Showers 59°/46° 30 %
Mar 12 Showers 57°/50° 60 %
Mar 13 Rain 57°/47° 70 %
It always rains on my parade... but at least it will be in the high 50's!
Spring you cannot come any sooner!
So loving this weather!
Off to go outside and enjoy some of this sunshine before I have to go to bed.
Early and super long day tomorrow!
p.s. pictures might be coming of the gorgeousness that is outside if I have enough energy to go for a walk. <3
Too bad been in the hospital visiting for the past two days...
Please send prayers that our family member will go home soon ... But with good outcomes!
But for now... Let's enjoy this gorgeous sunshine!

i am currently in my orientation and they are covering things that i already know so... i decided that it was a great idea/time to update my lovely and lonely blog.
been doing this orientation for 3 weeks now and it's been interesting so far.
a lot to learn, a lot to memorize and at the same time a lot to try to get through! a lot of things i already learned myself they are telling us AGAIN because there are new people that need it. oh well.
gives me time to update here.
and also catch up on some blogs as well.
just fyi, this keyboard sucks balls so my letters will be minimized unless i wanna hit the caps lock. too much work pressing the shift key for 5 seconds before it works. haha
so to update, my paycheck came in and it looked so lovely. but guess what? it went bye bye by the time the next day came around because my bills were asking to be paid. it sucks!!! and they actually jipped me $$$ because they got my rate wrong for 36 hrs. i hate talking to payroll too. they aren't much help either! so hopefully it will get fixed by this week!
so what has happened since the last time i came around...
well kevin and i are spending some QT over the weekends because we both have off and are able to go places now! yay!
saturday we spent the day together by just going out, window shopping, and watching big bang theory. we are on the second season now and we LOVE it.
with many shows (esp. comedies) it takes A LOT to get him to react! he barely makes a sound via laugh, chuckle or smirk. he'll say "yeah. it was funny." after i ask him if he thought it was funny.
so to hear him make a chuckle or an actual laugh while watching this show makes me happier!
i think he was a deprived child and did not have any little kids to have a real full blown out laugh-off.
now - with me we have had some laugh-off's can't lie. but it is just annoying at times because he won't do it in front of other people! i have to usually say "it's just his way. he doesn't like showing emotion a lot." (like they couldn't already tell from his non-reaction!) i just hope as the years go by, he will be more comfortable with our friends/family to be able to show more emotion.
does you guy do that??? does it feel like
anywho, sunday we took my dad out to breakfast.
that was fun.
we haven't done much with just the three of us and it was good to be with both of them at the same time.
i love that we all get along and that there is no awkwardness.
do your parents and your current beau get along?
and so the work week begins.
monday was just another learning/class/orientation day here at my job. some interesting things but it was just a long day. what made it not cool was that i got stuck in traffic when i was 5 minutes away from home. yuck! but my dad made up for it by having dinner cooked and ready for me! yay!
i finally got to watch Ellen since the darn Olympics took up the whole time in february so that was cool.
i also watched Oprah and she had jerry seinfield with his new show "marriage ref". it looks awesome and a cool new show for sunday nights.
later in the night kev and i went up to the mall cause i had to do a return at Sephora. what i had to return is this:
after sephora i took kevin to dinner since he didn't get anything at home after work.
we went to corner bakery and i bought me some pretzel bites. yum! it was my "spoil" day of my good food eating goal. haha
and today Tuesday i am in classes/orientation again and bored but happy i got to update. we are about to go to lunch now and gotta finish this looong a$$ post up.
thanks for reading!
